INTRODUCTION | THE RIGHT ROSES
At The Right Roses, we support two important causes:
- ‘The Best Rose Experience’.
- ‘Together We Protect This Planet’.
The team at The Right Roses firmly believe that, with the support from all members, collectively we can make a big difference. Moreover, sharing your own experience and stories will be such an important way to enrich the resources for rose-lovers all over the world, including YOU.
This time, we would like to share with you a story from Max, a gardener from Spain. As a gardener, Max must overcome two of the biggest challenges that many gardeners have.
- Select the best rose to plant in a pot
- And, select a rose that tolerates the heat in a warmer climate like Spain.
And, Max got a phenomenal success with rose ‘Desdemona’. We hope that his story can be a source of inspiration to many gardeners. We highly appreciate Max’s contribution. And, we truly believe that this positive rose experience would lead to many others in the future for Max.
We look forward to many other stories around the world. Please send your rose experience to RightRosesCom@gmail.com.
And, do not forget to read our review of rose ‘Desdemona’.

I am really happy with her in almost every aspect. Maybe the only thing I expect a little more is the fragrance. It is really a delicious scent but not really strong in my case. I expected it to be more intense but maybe is because it is only one year old or because of the climate.
